photo gallery - felted toddler slip-ons.

We absolutely love it when our customers share pictures of their finished projects made from our patterns. Check out these awesome Felted Toddler Slip-ons made by Laura of LKsCreativeThread. 

I love them!! The little embellishments are the perfect touch to these slippers. She used ribbon across the top of the foot and handmade the little flowers. How you ask? I was curious too so I had to ask! "The flowers I handmade with wool felt I also got at Joanne s . I made the flowers behind cutting a round (how big I wanted the flower) then cut into it a spiral then rolled it and sewed it together then sewed them on. It was so much fun.. possibilities are endless!" Laura says.

And if her creativity on these slippers weren't enough, here is another pair that she made using the same pattern!

Isn't this little guy precious?? And look at him sporting his new "cookie monster" slippers.  Laura created these slippers using KnitPicks yarn. The eyes were added by using some white acrylic yarn and a bit of black felt.  They are adorable!

As Laura said, the possibilities are endless!  We look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with for their finished projects.  Please feel free to share your pictures with us either by emailing us at or by posting your projects on

Be sure to check out Laura and Kristine's Etsy shop, LKsCreativeThread for more wonderful knit and crocheted creations! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!
